methadone detox

I have been detoxed off  of my methadone over a six month period,my last dose of 4ml was 10  days ago and the first five days were rough,the last three days i have been taking zopiclone for sleep and dihydracodeine for the aches and pains.
What i want to know is if i stop taking the dhc and zopiclone what can i expect?

You should expect some withdrawal due to the codeine. Your receptors are still full of opiates . The great thing is that the symptoms should be a lot milder than if you quit straight from the Methadone.
I wish you success.
